Virgin Orbit LauncherOne drop test (Virgin Orbit) Virgin Orbit has an agreement to perform launches from a U.S. Air Force base in Guam. VOX Space, the government services subsidiary of Virgin Orbit, said Thursday it signed an agreement to allow it to use Andersen Air Force Base in Guam for operations of its air-launched LauncherOne system. The first mission from that base will be one for the Air Force called STP-27VP, carrying several experimental cubesats. Virgin Orbit has not set a date for that mission, and its first launch of the LauncherOne system, flying out of California, is expected to take place in the near future.
